SF Sheriff thrown out of office

Original post made by Sam, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Nov 6, 2015

Ross Mirkarimi lost Tuesday's election. He was even worse than we all thought.

He's blamed for the shooting death of the Pleasanton native by the Mexican national that had been deported five times, only to come back each time. The Feds knew he was in SF and asked the Sheriff's department to hand him over for deportation yet again, but the Sheriff refused citing SF's "Sanctuary City" policy.

After he was first elected, two years ago, in the time between the election and the time he took office, he was charged with battery on his wife. Pictures of his wife's bruises made it to the media. Immediately afterward, his wife left the country for some months to address "family" issues, but mostly so that she wouldn't be able to be interviewed. SF Mayor Lee tried to get him fired, but that didn't work, too many of his cronies stood up for him.

Then, the DMV revoked his drivers' license. He was in an accident while in a city car. The other party reported the accident to the DMV but Mirkarimi did not. So the DMV yanked his license. A paperwork snafu, perhaps, but by the Sheriff? I doubt that he would have cut me the same slack.

And then he was prohibited from carrying a weapon. He failed his marksmanship exam.

So we have a wife-beating sheriff, who had his boss try to fire him even before he started work, and who was without his horse and gun. Let's all remember these events if and when he tries to come back to the political stage. We remembered when Mary Hayashi tried to come back; keep it up folks!

I'm delighted that the Ross is out of a job! tee hee...

Tragically, a healthy young woman lost her life. May she Rest In Peace.

Sheriff M did not kill her. A bullet did.

I appreciate knowing that a White man murdered President Lincoln and don't you forget it! Lets not forget that Donald Trump beat up Ivana Trump for messing up his "hair". duh...

I believe that the issue of wife beating needs to be examined in detail in the the next Republican debate! I totally enjoy observing the R's duke it out!!!
